Colour This Book by Thomas Whittle

Thomas Whittle led a series of exciting drawing and colouring workshops with a hundred and thirty-one children at Hotspur Primary School to produce imaginative illustrations for this unique book inspired by birds. This new endeavour began with a visit to the school from Wych Elm Falconry where the children met Fain the Raven, Torr the Harris Hawk and Duma the Eagle Owl and created drawings of the birds. In subsequent workshops, Whittle and the children have transformed their origonal drawings into colourful imagery that was presented in an exhibition at 25sg on Monday 27 June 2011. While Whittle’s work is known for its naïve and child like, investigative approach, in Colour this Book, he combines his fascination with children’s drawings and his passion for colour.

Colour this Book is available for £8.
